Getting all your vitamins and minerals is important to your health, and many take a supplement to ensure they are getting the essentials needed - but knowing which vitamins and minerals to take can feel confusing.
They say to make sure you are getting your recommended daily allowance of B-complex vitamins (B1 to B12), vitamin D, and vitamin C. They stress avoiding getting a "mega dose" and note "a balanced amount of vitamin is key." They explain when someone ingests too much of a vitamin it can be detrimental and counterintuitive to their health.
Drs. Bita and Shawn Nasseri also stress to "buddy" your vitamins with elements like calcium, zinc, and magnesium, which they contend can help keep your immune system strong and balanced.
For example, they say when taking vitamin C, if it is paired with iron the vitamin is more effective.
